Additive for Non-Shrink Concrete and Shrinkage-Reduced Concrete
KSC CONCRETE TECHNICAL GUIDE [PDF]
When incorporated into a concrete mix design, KSC Komponent® can reduce or eliminate shrinkage cracking in concrete, and reduce the number of joints in the concrete. Applications include bridge decks, parking structures, slabs on grade, and containment tanks. KSC Komponent® should be strongly considered whenever Type-K Cement is specified in a project, as it is often a more cost-efficient option.
KSC Komponent® is NOT a shrinkage-reducing admixture (SRA). It is an expansive cement which when added to regular portland cement, produces ASTM C845 Type-K Cement. Typically, about 15% of the cement is replaced with Komponent® to meet the requirements of ASTM C845 Type-K Cement. Lesser amounts of Komponent® can be used to produce low-shrinkage and reduced shrinkage concrete. More...
